No complaints here. We were in the mood for Lobster roll and that's what you get at this place, really good Lobster roll actually. Fast service and pleasant seating area right on the water. You can watch Osprey as you eat.

Great location on the water. The owner pulls his own lobster traps so the lobster could not be fresher. The staff was very attentive. This restaurant is BYOB so a great deal. The best lobster roll I have had all summer!

Better plan on spending some money for a group of four. Skip the stuffed clams. Too much mushy breading and barely any meat in it. The lobster was good and tasted great. Good amount of butter. Just wish I could have gotten it whole. Also...More

The lobster rolls were delicious and the the view wonderful. This is what you do at the CT shoreline in the summer. Bring your own beer or wine and enjoy hot lobster rolls the way they should be. Server Aidan was great!!! Go there before...More

Traditional casual setting for eating lobster rolls or hot dogs. Great outdoor tables by the docks and marsh. Bring your own beer and spend a great afternoon or early evening. No fried foods on menu though so forget the fries or rings.

The place is very basic and my guess would be know. On the other hand, this is a true mom & pop (or mom & son) operation and I bet if you let them know your needs in advance they will try to accommodate you. worth asking... More

We specialize in a fresh caught steamy lobster roll made to order. Also fresh clam chowder made daily, homemade stuffed clams. Not in the mood for seafood? Grab a nice hot dog by the sea and enjoy the view on our award winning deck overlooking the beautiful guilford harbor and long island sound.
